Picture Play May 1937 - Cover Jean Harlow

Sorry, this item has sold.

Wonderful rare old copy of Street & Smith's Picture Play magazine featuring Jean Harlow on the cover. It is heavy with great photos of stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Stars like James Cagney, Deanna Durbin, Don Ameche, Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Robert Taylor, and so many more. Gorgeous cover art.

Picture Play was one of the earliest movie magazines, founded in 1915, and ran until 1941. It was produced by Street & Smith, who also did cheap novels, comic books, etc. It has a very pictorial content as the first editor began his career as a cartoonist. The photos in this issue are pretty awesome.

CONDITION: Good to very good. Flaws with this issue are a fragile spine with some loss of binding towards the bottom, and a recent blemish on the cover. Looks like it had a sticker on it and someone removed it, thus pulling off some of the ink.

SIZE: It is a 8.5 inch by 11 inch format
